Black hearts run free while

Those pure stand in their gilded cage and cry silver tears of grief

Who said that this was fair

We have names but we'd gladly forget them all for a chance to be with you

We're just outlines flitting faster than shadows in the outer darkness of an absent sun

Sons and daughters join hands in harmony only to scream and shatter the circle

The others look in the windows and can't see a damn thing

Or maybe they just don't understand what's happening

Come on inside out of the rain but we never promised that we would protect you

The blood is flying faster than the fists

We watch our beloved stand to one side and watch as we fight for them wordlessly

We battle silently within our own hearts

We are torn and our eyes clash with those of our neighbors

It's for our own good that you don't see this

You would never believe that you caused this
